Hi ho. Here's a bunch of new comics Ive had to do for school. Trying some more cartoony stuff for ease of production.

panel size was restricted on this one. Had to fit "do as I say, not as I do" into the concept somehow.

2nd one hot off the press. Had to have some kind of multiple narration, and one of the narrators had to be an aspect of the environment.
I'll be fucking glad when we can stop following these stupid little restrictions. They're very... restricting.

    Not your typical project, but you pulled it off. I'd really like you to do stuff like this more often, cartoony but still gritty I mean.

    You know, you use textures REALLY well. Like, it adds a lot. Is there a strategy to what and where you use them and such? It seems like you've got multiple different pavements, splatters, and paint strokes going on there.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    The textures are all just splatter textures from http://cgtextures.com/. Only stragagy I used is pretty simple using shot spatters on things like the nuke and gunshot, and just different colour variations and whatnot for different panels (green for the puke one, red for when hes bleeding etc etc)

    the comic-like (but high quality) art contrasted with the depressing (but well paced and written) dialogue is throwing me off somewhat.

    McGibs, these look really cool.

    The angle of the comics never seem to change. Everything is drawn from one angle. The close-ups help, but maybe a little more variety in the in drawings would help (which I know you're capable of). Just a thought!

    The set camera angle was intentional. One, for ease of production, and Two, I wanted to go for sort of a side-scroller video game feel ala Metal Slug.

    Gibs, on that first one, is he sad because he just realized widowed and orphaned a man whose name he knows now or that he actually already knew the guy?

    These are simply fantastic gibs <3 <3

    I am a little confused with the 2nd panel of the second comic. Did he fall out of the car because of the crash? Or did he fall out after sitting in the crash vehicle for a while? It just seems a little awkward as the fall doesn't have any momentium. I just stands out to me because the rest of the panels and the storytelling is great.

    great style keep at it, the only thing I've noticed was the arms on the boy seem off. His left arm is rediculously meaty.

    Edit: except you seem to have a constant Meaty arm style on everything you portray, so it could just be the style itself. Although if it is that may be a unhealthy thing going on.

    Edit again: Also i'm curious on the girl, on the first part of the sniper, did you draw a Jester first before applying the grass/ect to the top? It feels very strange because of where the legs stick out and where the body sticks out along with the angle of the entire person itself.
